Hi.. I am 29 male from India. I have sucked a woman nipple and nothing done more. I have found some taste on my tongue but clearly I havn't find any dischage/liquid from her nipple. After one week I have checked that woman whether she is lactate ( she had 4 years old boy) or any nipple dischage by fondling throughly. I havn't found any thing. Lot of anxiety over hiv risk.
After that incident,
At 11 day, I went for Elisa antibodies 1 and 2 test - not reactive.
At 15 day, went for HIV 1 qualitative DNA PCR test - not detected.
At 16 day, went for HIV 1 & 2 Proviral DNA PCR - not detected.
At 28 day, HIV 1 & 2 Ab includes P24 antigen test - not reactive
Is that conclusive?
later came to know that the fourth generation test can not able to detect HIV 2 P24 antigen. is it true? What to do now.

Hello there- It would be unlikely that a woman with a four year old would still be lactating and your overall risk for HIV was very very low. The 4th generation test looks for both the HIV AB and the p24 antigen and by 4 weeks would be expected to be very accurate for detecting HIV infection. To be sure, a negative 4th generation test at 90 days would be conclusive. Take care, LHW
